Saab Opens Electronic Warfare Solutions Centre In Finland

Saab has established a new development centre – the Saab Technology Centre (STC) – in Tampere, Finland, with a focus on Electronic Warfare (EW).

The unit contributes to deliveries for Saab´s current EW contracts for fighter aircraft, including Gripen E/F, the EW system for Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft, and the Electronic Support Measures/Electronic Intelligence systems (ESM/ELINT) used for land applications.

During 2017, Saab recruited a number of engineers and invested in the establishment of the STC in Tampere, including a development laboratory. The recruitment and investment will continue in 2018.

"Finland is a high-tech country and an important partner for Saab. The long-term goal is that STC in Tampere will be an integral part of Saab's product development and production," says Håkan Buskhe, Saab's President and CEO.

“In February 2017, we established a comprehensive and long-term research partnership with Aalto University. As a natural continuation, we are now expanding the envelope from research to development of cutting-edge technology. In addition to job creation, this will also support export opportunities as part of Saab’s global business network,” says Anders Gardberg, Managing Director of Saab’s country unit Finland.
